Standard Bank Tutuwa Community Foundation awards two scholarships
The St Stithians Foundation is delighted to announce a new partnership with the Standard Bank Tutuwa Community Foundation, which has awarded two academic scholarships for Grade 8 students to study at St Stithians Girls’ College from January 2017.
In 2015, the Standard Bank Tutuwa Community Foundation commenced a partnership with the Allan Gray Orbis Foundation to extend the reach of Allan Gray’s successful high school scholarship programme which assesses, screens and interviews a large number of Grade 7 students from schools across South Africa. The scholarships are generous and cover the students’ schooling for five years at selected partner high schools across the country. From around 3 000 applications received each year, about 40 – 45 scholarships are awarded.
Following a thorough screening process, the Standard Bank Tutuwa Scholarships for 2017 have been awarded to 12 Grade 7 students (together with the 30 scholarships awarded by the Allan Gray Orbis Foundation).
Nonhlanhla Tshabalala and Lerato Mongaula, both of whom are academically strong and gifted all-rounders will start their high school careers with us next year. Nonhlanhla currently attends Dawn Park Primary School and Lerato is a student at Kingsway Christian School.
One & All welcome the Tshabalala and Mongaula families to the St Stithians Community.
